Dublin Airport has been short listed for Airport Council International (ACI) Europe’s prestigious ‘Best Airport Award’, in the airports with over 25 million passengers per annum category.
The acknowledgement comes after a record breaking year for Dublin Airport, with over 25 million passengers and the No.1 in Europe for passenger service achievement.
Other airports short listed in the category include Heathrow Airport, Frankfurt Airport, Adolfo Suarez Madrid-Barajas Airport and Amsterdam Schiphol Airport.
The ACI awards recognise excellence and achievement across a whole range of disciplines including retail, security, operations, facilities, community relations, environmental awareness and customer service.
Dublin Airport Managing Director, Vincent Harrison said “I am immensely proud to see Dublin Airport short listed for such an esteemed award. It is a testament to hard work, dedication and commitment of the airport’s employees.
“We constantly strive to improve the passenger experience; and to make Dublin Airport one of the best airports in the world,” he added
The winners will be announced next month at the ACI General Assembly, in Athens.
Dublin Airport has welcomed 5.5 million passengers in the first three months of the year, a 17% increase over the same quarter last year or an extra 817,000 passengers so far this year.
